BATZORIG Dugarsuren & BATKHOLBOO Dugarsuren: “Line”

September 29 – October 10, 2006
Opening reception: September 29, 2006 at 5 p.m

XanaduART gallery is pleased to present a joint exhibition by brothers Batzorig Dugarsuren and Batkholboo Dugarsuren entitled “Line”. The exhibition showcases abstract paintings by Batzorig and sculptures by Batkholboo. Both artists have graduated from the Institute of Fine Arts, Ulaanbaatar.

In his works “Red cross”, “Exodus” and “Puzzle”, Batzorig has highlighted the traditional symbolism of wooden puzzles, an important part of nomadic way of thinking. The use of such traditional symbols is contrasted with Batzorig’s highly abstract style. In comparison, Batkholboo also deals with traditional motifs in his work: he chose to display an abstract sculpture entitled “Shaman” as well as various sculptures of horses and people in traditional clothing. Thus, the two artists have created a fusion of tradition and modernity, a “Line” connecting the old and the new.
